PRAYING WITH THE GIANTS:
LEARN THE REAL SECRET OF LEADERSHIP
All other factors being equal, the common denominator of great spiritual leaders throughout the ages involves a focus on prayer. Prayer is the determining factor for maximum spiritual impact. The more we pray the more God works. Of all the skills needed by the difference-making spiritual leader, none is more important than prayer.
Tracing the lives of high-impact Christian leaders from Abraham to Billy Graham, Dave Earley reveals the central role that prayer played in their effectiveness. In doing so, he points out the eight practices Christian leaders can apply to become more effective in their prayer lives, and therefore, more spiritually influential as a leader.
While prayer is not the only weapon in the Christian leader's arsenal, it is one of the most powerful and often under-utilized. This book will inspire, transform, stretch, enhance, strengthen, and renew the prayer lives of readers.
Prayer: The Timeless Secret of High-Impact Leaders is filled with juicy quotes and anecdotes; it gives dozens of practical applications of the principles discussed.
"David Earley has written an important book that calls all of us to a higher prayer commitment. We all want to be high impact leaders...but we must remember that we will never go as high as God intends without continual, fervent prayer."
SR. PASTOR, THOMAS ROAD BAPTIST CHURCH
EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT OF SPIRITUAL AFFAIRS AT LIBERTY UNIVERSITY
